You know why I love farmer’s markets?  Because a lot of the varieties you find there you can’t get in grocery stores.  Summer produce is the best because everything is so amazingly colourful and unusual.  Take these pink beets from Klippers….reddish pink swirled with orange and yellow with white veins.  Not only were they crazy fresh but they were very sweet indeed!

Each one you cut is a surprise….kinda reminds me of some heirloom tomatoes.

I made a chicken beet salad with a combo of pink and golden beets… pretty!
